Shanghai 1920's style
The action in this Chinese film (with English subtitles) takes place at the time when in the early 20th century Shanghai was controlled by various crime lords seeking to control and extend their territories as exemplified by many films of this type for example Shanghai Triad. The hero initially tries to get on with life without using his tremendous martial art skills but is eventually forced to fight for honour and his love in some really brutal fights.
This movie is a hybrid of period drama, 80's Hong Kong action fare and (towards the end) some retro Bruce Lee worship. Character motivations seem to be all over the place and the plot is not very focused but it kept my interest and the fight scenes were well done.
